Wish To Burn Fat? – Your Exercise Program Needs To Be Right

For the previous few decades the fitness business has focused all of its attention on the amount of calories being burnt throughout an exercise session and have ignored the when effects of exercise. But the when effects of exercise and therefore the way it relates to metabolism (the bodies engine) might be the most necessary side of improving fitness and body composition (muscle/fat ratio). The reason for this can be that it relates directly to the balance of fine and not thus sensible hormones and their effect on body weight and health.
Through analysis we tend to currently apprehend that what you do throughout an exercise session directly impacts where the body burns fat or stores fat and incorporates a way reaching impact long once the exercise session has finished. After all it will mean that you can easily lose weight otherwise you get no weight loss results at all.
The right type of exercise performed at the proper level of intensity (degree of effort) releases hormones in the body, and these chemical messengers translate physical movement into metabolic action to help you get stronger and leaner faster.
Your resting metabolic rate is the number of calories the human body needs to function while resting or sleeping. The new way to lose weight and improve fitness is to extend this rate thus that a lot of fuel (calories) is burnt every minute of the day and night. There is only one sort of exercise that can try this and that’s strength training exercise.
When a person puts some effort into an exercise session operating their muscles, the tissue sends out hormonal signals to the remainder of the body to provide them with as abundant fuel and nutrients as possible. It’s necessary that the exercise be intense enough to stimulate this hormonal effect.
There are many tools, techniques and ways to come up with this effect with exercise, but none of them embody long duration or “fat burning zone” activity. No surprise that low intensity recreational activities like walking, jogging or cycling etc have little result on the stimulation of the hormones necessary for a metabolic effect.
This new understanding of the hormonal effects of vigorous activity dictates that the real fat burning zone exists at higher intensity levels than was previously believed. A strength coaching program that uses compound exercises utilizing huge muscle teams simply matches the intensity needed within the muscle tissue to cause a metabolism boosting result lasting long once exercise has ended. This has been proven with measurements of fat burning enzymes which will ‘teach’ the body to become additional efficient at fat burning.
If you request the assistance of a fitness professional to set up your program you’re more probably to access this optimal state of hormonal balance. The key benefits of a properly designed and effective strength training program are metabolic and hormonal in nature and when you achieve this you’ll be getting the most ‘bang for your buck’ together with your exercise program. A sturdy, lean, slim and healthy body will slowly become yours.

Fitness Campaign Needs Fitness Equipment

Like advertising, fitness equipment manufacturing is also one of the fastest growing industries. Across the globe, the secret of successful advertising lies in a well thought-out strategic marketing plan, professional execution of creative concepts, and brand management. Likewise, the secret of good health lies in a well-planned nutrient-rich diet, regular exercise, and selection of the right fitness equipment for the right purpose. When it comes to business growth, creativity and the quality of advertising campaign ensures high sales; similarly, the innovative factor and quality of fitness equipment help us keep the body in great shape. All we need to do is to visualize, plan, and execute the fitness campaign accordingly.

There are plenty of fitness equipment options out there- but if you do not have a well thought-out plan behind the fitness campaign, you are not going to have desired results. The most wanted results are inter-linked with the fitness equipment you chose. All parts of the human body have different roles to play. If one has chosen the fitness equipment for weight management, it is not advisable to use the same for treating illness or accident recovery. The choice, always and in all ways, matters a lot. We need to understand the importance of the ‘right tool for the right job’. As you are working on your physical fitness campaign, you are to consider yourself as a customer. As we do in advertising, go with a ‘needs analysis’. This ‘needs analysis’ may also be strengthened with a ‘SWOT’ analysis. For this, you may consult a physician or a trainer as some exercises may not be useful for you.  Also, consider your budget constraints. You can compare prices to find the affordable fitness equipment.

The use of appropriate fitness equipment as per your physician’s advice is fundamental. Fitness equipment comes in different shapes and sizes; therefore, try to find the most related equipment. Sometimes, we do not get desired results from a print media campaign. If the target audience prefers electronic media, offer them something inspirational to watch or to listen. Simply speaking, stand in front of the mirror and try to visualize what fitness equipment you need. You may need:

– Spinning bikes for the home

– Gym balls, ropes, monitors, and mats

– Ankle/Back/Knee supports

– Treadmills

–  Yoga equipment

– Resistance equipment and rowing machines

In order to have a great body shape, one has to consider several fitness exercises. For this, you need to invest in the relevant fitness equipment. If you cannot go to Gym, you can also have them for your home, school, college, and health care center. Run this fitness campaign successfully, and enjoy the benefits of staying healthy and fit. Just compare prices and get fit.

Wojo Nutrition Announces the Launch of the First Line of Single Serving Liquid Supplements Formulated to be Added to Any Drink and to Fit the Unique Needs of One’s Day


Overland Park, KS (PRWEB) February 23, 2015

Wojo Nutrition announces the launch of their six liquid single serving supplements formulated to be added to any beverage and designed to fit the needs of one’s day.

At Wojo Nutrition, they don’t see the multivitamin as a one size fits all solution to one’s nutritional needs. Every day is filled with its own challenges, and every challenge has its own solution. This is why they’ve developed a line of six liquid single serving supplements that can be added to any beverage and are each specially formulated to tackle a distinct problem head-on.

From stress-filled board meetings to draining to-do lists to that pre-workout boost, with Wojo Nutrition users pick the convenient, travel-ready supplement to suit their special needs for the day and add it to their favorite beverage. Its light taste blends instantly with any hot or cold beverage for a quick pick-me-up that’s easy on the palette and can be taken at any time.

“Wojo is also a great alternative to solid form vitamin and supplements,” said Wojo Nutrition Founder Carol Knowles. “Our different formulas fit the needs of its users whether it be for energy, focus, mood and more this is what makes Wojo so beneficial and unique.”

Each single serving formula begins with a base of 6 B vitamins that are essential to healthy nerve and cell development. It’s then enhanced with a blend of herbal extracts and naturally derived amino acids and vitamins specific to its intended use. As an added health benefit, all of their offerings are free of sugar, artificial sweeteners and flavorings, and chemical masking agents.

Currently, there are two products available for purchase. wojoENERGY is their proprietary formula, which provides balanced, feel good energy and support throughout the day, while wojoCALM is a soothing way to remove stress before it gets out of hand.

This summer they’ll be releasing four new offerings including wojoFOCUS, wojoSUN, wojoWELL, and wojoMOOD.

“I hope that people may reach for a Wojo before they make the decision to reach for a pharmaceutical product or sugary energy drinks,” said Knowles.

Wojo Nutrition will be showcasing their line of products at Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, California, running from March 4th-8th.

Founded in June 2012, Wojo Nutrition spent over two years developing their special formulas before bringing them to market in 2015.

“I launched Wojo as a way to provide men and women with a supplement that lets them focus on their journey, not just surviving from day to day,” said Knowles.

“Sometimes that means harnessing more energy, focus, or a better mood to face what’s ahead, and that’s where Wojo gives the body and mind a gentle nudge in the right direction.”

Kiko Labs Unveils New Neuroscience-Based App for Children to Challenge Critical Skills Every Child Needs for School Success


San Carlos, Calif (PRWEB) January 15, 2015

Kiko Labs, alongside neuroscientists, today announced Kiko’s Thinking Time for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, a unique adaptive suite of games for children based on neuropsychological exercises to challenge the foundational skills needed for school success. By playing the app, children exercise critical skills like executive functions and reasoning in fun workouts.

As 90% of a child’s brain develops in the first 5 years of life, the early, formative years are the ones that matter most. *Children with stronger working memory, inhibition and attentional skills have been found to make larger gains on tests of early math, language and literacy development. Early research shows promise that these skills can be trained. Kiko Labs collaborated with neuroscientists from Harvard and UC Berkeley, and with support from the U.S. Department of Education, to design Kiko’s Thinking Time from behaviors and evidence-based techniques drawn from scientific studies showing early promise in improving the critical cognitive skills related to learning capacity.

“At Kiko Labs, we believe that every child deserves to fulfill his or her potential. Our learning experience called Kiko’s Thinking Time is a training program designed to help them do that,” said Grace Wardhana, co-founder and CEO, Kiko Labs. “This app for children targets fundamental skills like executive functions and reasoning that are the necessary groundwork for learning in kindergarten and beyond. Our goal is to make mental exercises fun.”

About Kiko’s Thinking Time

In just 10 minutes, children aged 3 – 7 can go on a customized adventure with Kiko the Fox to help her in her quest for treasure. They play a series of 10 games where they meet cute animal characters in Kiko’s village and help them with their activities. Through fun mental exercise, children who play Kiko’s Thinking Time challenge skills like memory and focus that will help them become more attentive, focused learners in school. After the child is finished playing, the app provides reporting tools for parents to chart progress over time.

“Kiko’s Thinking Time gives kids training wheels to practice critical skills like working memory and reasoning. It does this by providing a structured environment, and by designing progression in a rigorous, hierarchical way.” – Dr. Jenny Thomson, neuroscientist, former associate professor, Harvard University

Reaction from Parents, Teachers, Clinicians

Today’s announcement builds upon a successful beta version of Kiko’s Thinking Time, which recorded nearly 700,000 sessions of training activity. The response from children, their parents, teachers and clinicians has been impressive:

●    “It is a great mix of a playing and learning app – it includes the perfect skills while keeping kids interested.” – Rebecca Brian, parent of three

●    “Every classroom should have this app. I think it is wonderful and will really benefit the classroom. The data is excellent and will help me lead my instruction.” – Jaquetta Wallace, head teacher, Oakland Unified School District

●    “I am an ABA therapist and work with a variety of children on the autism spectrum. I have been using it with my clients to help them improve their focus, ability to switch between tasks, etc. I find it very useful and I love that they enjoy it as a game!” – Yohanka Allen, clinician

Availability and Pricing

Kiko’s Thinking Time is available for free in the App Store for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch or at http://www.appstore.com. When parents are ready for more content they can upgrade for unlimited access to all 10 games and a new game added monthly for $ 7.99/month or $ 49.99/year.

Integrated Health Yoga Therapy Introduces Holistic Health Consultant Certification to Meet the Needs for a New Medical Model


(PRWEB) November 26, 2014

As part of Integrated Health Yoga Therapy’s (http://www.ihyt.org/) new Holistic Health Consultant Certification Program ( http://www.ihyt.org/#!holistic-health-consultant/cojj), IHYT welcomes new faculty member macrobiotic expert and natural health counsellor, teacher, and researcher John Kozinski (http://www.macrobiotic.com/), whose unique macrobiotic program for health, in the spirit of IHYT’s own integrative philosophies, combines “the best of eastern and western approaches to food, nutrition, health, and healing with a contemporary interpretation.”

John Kozinski brings vast experience having taught and counselled over 38 years both in his own Macrobiotic Family Practice and as a senior faculty member at an international natural health institute with over 27 years uninterrupted tenure (1986-2013). He has aided thousands of people in their recovery from/improvement within a wide variety of conditions such as cancer, heart disease, chronic fatigue, diabetes, hypoglycemia, inflammatory bowel syndrome, and mood disorders. He also trained many macrobiotic teachers and counsellors working in the field today. He has appeared on television and radio, written numerous articles on the topic of natural health and healing, and created an extensive series of macrobiotic health education CD’s and DVD’s. John maintains a teaching and counselling practice in Massachusetts while travelling extensively to assist in natural health programs and counselling.

John’s macrobiotic program for health draws on his wealth of experience and research, truly flowing from the holistic notion of whole body health and healing. It carefully interweaves strands of Chinese medicine, modern nutrition, allopathic medical approaches, Ayurvedic medicine, eastern and western herbal remedies, the energetic healing arts of Quigong/Do In and yoga, and his ongoing practice and teaching of shiatsu massage. Both conventional and alternative healing modalities have been a part of his sweeping, meticulous, ongoing research and study as he works to incorporate and integrate best practices concerning natural health care methodology and diagnosis.    

The term Macrobiotics refers to a philosophy of living applied to diet, lifestyle, and healing therapies to not only address individual conditions but to help optimize each person’s ability to create, in the course of life, their own greatest experience of physical and mental health. While its philosophies and practices were developed and popularized in Japan although based also upon Chinese traditions such as principle of balance known as yin and yang, it is important to understand that macrobiotics represents the way all indigenous cultures ate, and to a large extent, the way most populations on the planet ate prior to the industrial revolution. Modern Macrobiotics originated with George Ohsawa who introduced these oriental philosophies and practices to the West in the mid-20th century. Among his disciples was Michio Kushi who was instrumental in developing and refining North American Macrobiotics practice out of Massachusetts through the Kushi Institute.

Balance is the key element in Macrobiotics practice, but on a more basic level it presents a dietary model in which grains (preferably whole) and vegetables (preferably local) dominate and other foods play a minor role or are avoided completely. This latter group includes meats, animal fats, eggs, poultry, dairy products, refined sugars, tropical fruits and fruit juices, coffees and stimulant teas, hot spices, processed foods and refined grains and flours. The middle of the pyramidal model includes beans, seeds, nuts, and natural sweets in moderate amounts. The model is a basic representation of a more complicated system in which all foods inherently express a level of both yin and yang, with some being more balanced than others. Whole grains and vegetables represent the most inherently balanced foods, but through knowledge and practice a healthy Macrobiotic diet can also achieve balance through the juxtaposition of contrasting yin and yang foods within the same meal. Relaxed eating and proper chewing are also important aspects of a healthy Macrobiotics diet.

Diet may be the key element of Macrobiotics but Macrobiotics is not limited to diet. Sleep, exercise, exposure to fresh air, sunlight, and green plants, right down to intricate details about how we wash, dress, and order our homes and meals all find a place in Macrobiotics philosophy and practice as part of seeking a balanced lifestyle in which to maximize one’s experience of physical and mental health.

Integrated Health Yoga Therapy, both through its new Holistic Health Consultant Certification Program, and its addition of Macrobiotics expert John Kozinski to the IHYT staff, is dedicated to helping educate those to who want to help others find their best selves and live their best lives.
